Conor McGregor a massive favorite in hypothetical Machine Gun Kelly fight

If Conor McGregor ever finds himself in the ring with Heavy Kelly, experts say he has nothing to worry about.

McGregor and Kelly were involved in a physical altercation Sunday night at the MTV Video Music Awards in New York City. The fighter and the rapper were quickly separated, but the hint of a clash between them has already led to speculation that they might meet in a regulated competition in the future.

Bookmaker site Bovada has set starting odds for the fight between McGregor and Kelly, where McGregor enjoys a big favorite of -5000 and Kelly an outsider of +1000. The fight is listed in the Entertainment – Celebrity Boxing section.

For betting purposes, it will take a $ 5,000 bet on McGregor to win $ 100, and a $ 100 bet on Kelly will generate a $ 1,000 return. -5000 reflects an assumed probability of winning 98.04 percent, while +1000 has a probability of 9.09 percent.

The huge disparity in odds shouldn’t come as a surprise to fight fans – the only surprise might be that it’s not wider – given McGregor’s accomplishments within the octagon. Despite recent struggles, McGregor remains the main star of the UFC and has held championships in two divisions for promotion.

Kelly has no experience in combat sports.

A fight between McGregor and Kelly or anyone else, for that matter, won’t take place anytime soon. The Notorious is expected to be incapacitated by 2022 as he recuperates from a broken leg sustained in his recent fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 this July.
